Reviews for Thorlos XCMU
Experia Mini-Crew - Black on Black = Awesomeness!
02/05/15 | By Casey G .
My feet are a U.S. Men’s Size: 10, medium to narrow with and I need good arch support and cushioning for comfort and to take up some volume for a good snug proper fit, I am an ex-Soccer player so I love a glove like fit regarding my footwear. I where Nikes sneakers, Asolo Hiking Boots, SIDI Cycling Shoes & Motorcycle Boots, and Atomic Ski Boots. I love the XCMU-12-066 - Experia Mini-Crew, Black on Black. I where these socks in Men’s Thorlos Sock Size: 12 = USA Shoe Size: 10.5 to 11.5 and they fit perfect. I have owned and worn Thorlo’s SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks for years they last and last. I also sold tons of them when I worked at a Ski, Snowboard & Boat Shop, that is the most important piece of gear when going skiing - a great pair of Thorlo’s, again another one of my classic favorites the SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks have been discontinued :( I am so so bummed out that Thorlo just discontinued my other favorite adventure socks :( listed below. Thorlo PLEASE bring them back!!! XSKI Extreme Ski, Color: Charcoal/Black = Skiing, Shoveling Snow & Winter Motorcycling Awesomeness! Discontinued :( XWXU Experia Wool Silk Crew, Color: Charcoal = Hiking, Fall/Winter Trail Running and Casual Awesomeness! Discontinued :( XCXU-12-073 - Experia Crew, Color: Black/White = Spring/Fall Hiking, Spring/Fall/Winter Trail Running and Casual Awesomeness! Discontinued :(
Exactly what I didn't know I needed

My sister (an avid runner) has reccomended these for years. Now I know why. I wasn't having any problems with my feet, but these are the best socks ever. My only regret, I should have bought more. Four pair not enough.
Great socks for older age!

I retired from 34 years offshore - I have to 'buy' my cushion. These socks are GREAT!
looking forward to

I have not had a chance to use these yet. Waiting for hot weather. BUT - BE advised... Thorlos are the best sock around. I have worn them for 40 years, and for the past 20, I have bought no other. I have 40+ pair and alternate for use and season. Mostly KX and LTH, with some dedicated sport socks added. I wear them every day, all day, for work and play, and I am active. They are pricier than some others but will last and still fit tight sooooo much longer. They fill the space between the foot and the shoe with comfort and dry. I only buy different use socks now because all my others are in such great shape. I can't say for sure when or if any of my current stock will wear out. Get on Thorlo's mailing list and take advantage of their twice a year buy 3, get one free. That'll bring the price down! And you get to support made in America.

need the padded toe and heel for hiking. like the higher ankle than is sold in store.
12/10/14 | By Mark N .
the socks and the pictures are two different products: socks look solid (like usual socks) in picture, but are gauze-like in actuality. socks not made by thorlo but use a thorlo component dissapointing
best socks for walking and tennis
11/22/14 | By Amy J .
great, i used to have to wear 2 pair of socks and now i just wear these.
Comfortable but ugly printing on toes
11/03/14 | By Thomas G .
Excellent socks and comfortable. The printing on the toes are ugly especially if you wear them with open toe sandals. Don' t mind the printing along the ankle. Lower rating because of printing on toes
Great for Golf
08/25/14 | By Jeremiah S .
These are awesome socks. The cushioning is particularly good when I walk the golf course and do a lot of uphill and downhill walking. Also, unbeknownst to me, my active 20 something daughter uses these socks for her training and swears by them, so I will try them in other applications. In sum, a great product - I bought seven pair and will probably buy more.
07/19/14 | By Les W .
If you have large feet-12 to 14, do not buy these. I wasted my money.
07/18/14 | By Marc B .
not cushy, I may have ordered them in error
GREAT running socks
07/18/14 | By Brenda b B .
Have been wearing these socks for running, workout,casual and walking for years, and have never been disappointed in them.
Best socks ever!
07/17/14 | By Miriam R .
My husband and I have been using those socks over a couple of years, and we love them! We also wear them for hikking and they work perfectly with hikking shoes. We never got a blister. Our feet are always dry for hours minimizing the sweat and the odor.
Pretty good socks for not being what I thought.
06/29/14 | By Selma K .
These socks work great with my sneakers but I can't wear them with my steel toe shoes. So I'll be back for more socks in no time. Love the quality of your products.
Worst socks ever owened
06/27/14 | By Brian S .
I ordered the socks in my size, but they were toooooo small. Yet the boot socks were the same size and fit perfectly. I wear size 11, but yet these they fit my girl who wears size 7. Returning them was easy....
Love all the Thorlo socks I've bought.
06/14/14 | By Florence M .
I started off with a sample sock and was hooked. Bought many and some for my nephew for a birthday gift.
Love these socks
06/11/14 | By Megan N .
I love your socks - they are so comfortable - I wear them with my boots all of the time - when it's hot they don't make my feet hotter
Walked 40 miles, NO BLISTERS
06/09/14 | By Denise H .
Anytime I have walked any serious miles I would get blisters on the ball of my foot, not with these babies, LOVE them!
Best socks for anything I decide to do!!!! Love them.
06/08/14 | By Monica B .
I started wearing these socks about 2 years ago and now this is all I own. I wear them for running, walking, shopping and just about anything. Excellent product!!! I started giving them to my friends in my running group and now they are hooked too.
Not a runner, but love these socks!
06/08/14 | By Melody G .
I'm too old and arthritic to do much running, but these socks are perfect for me anyway. They work great inside my crocs or sneakers for walking, gardening, and errands. They have an energizing feel and I like the bright colors as well as the white and black ones. As always, Thorlos is wonderful to deal with and sells terrific products.
Very comfortable and lightweight
05/21/14 | By David L .
Love the padded foot and heal. Just ran a 1/2 marathon in them and they were very comfortable.
The best socks for running
05/15/14 | By Warren r F .
After hearing all the horror stories on others feet problems. I feel these socks are excellent investment in foot longevity. After getting them for the summer months I know that it will be an excellent investment in my feet longevity over the winter months.
XCMU Experia multi activity-socks
03/05/14 | By David C .
I'm a long time Thorlo customer and fan! My recent purchase of the XCMU multi activity-sock Powered by Thorlo Pads is the most comfortable yet..
Needsmore padding in heel and toe
02/16/14 | By Leroy S .
Great sock, except that it needs more padding in heel and toe.
Amazing comfort and fit
02/01/14 | By Danielle W .
I love these socks so much I had to buy more for my mother. She is always wearing them and loves them too. 2 very happy customers.
01/28/14 | By Karen N .
Great cushioning and they last forever!
Wonderful for Spinning!!
01/19/14 | By Allison B .
I purchased these socks for my Spin class participants....they all love them!
Best workout socks I own!
01/18/14 | By Pamela D .
Love these socks!
Nice socks, but price too high
01/17/14 | By Rachael B .
I really wanted to give a good rating for these socks, but I don't feel or see anything special about these socks. The price of these socks should make them extra special.
great for work wearing under my work boots
01/15/14 | By Peter M .
I was pleased to find two pair that Santa left in my stocking. Hope he remembers me with this style next year.
Not good socks for me. Too fragile
01/12/14 | By Roger N .
I don't care for them. They do not feel like real socks. too thin at the non cushion part.
These socks saved my ankles
01/10/14 | By Danielle W .
I love these socks. I gave a pair to my mother and she is a fan too. Wonderful product I cannot believe the comfort. These socks make my day everyday. Thank you Thorlo!
Best wearing socks
01/03/14 | By James B .
Thorlos are the longest lasting socks I've ever owned. They stay put, won't sag or bunch up in my shoes. Awesome socks!
01/01/14 | By Danielle W .
I love my padded socks.
Comfortable cushioning for your feet!
01/01/14 | By Wendy E .
I am very happy with the quality of these Thorlo socks.
12/23/13 | By John B .
My wife loves these! Beautifully made, comfortable & perfectly padded. The on-line store made the purchase quick & easy and the delivery was very fast.
11/12/13 | By Esad B .
Great socks for long days on your feet, on concrete/pavement or other hard surfaces. Combined with great shoes, you can be on your feet for 15 hours and not worry about aches or pain.
10/19/13 | By Melody G .
I got these in the fall and suspect I'll wear them more after winter is over, but I do love them. Kind of an energizing feel to them, as well as in the color. Fun sock, but very practical, too.
Good not Great
08/25/13 | By Nathan H .
Serving as a US Marine Infantryman in some of the most brutal environments a foot and boot can experience, I always went with Thorlo as my go to sock. Their boot socks are second to none..and all the guys in my platoon had them. Now that I'm a veteran and no longer active duty, I purchased these with the intent of a daily use sock in the summer time. So here are my points. PROS Great padding in the right places Provides superior ventilation Fits perfect CONS Portions of the sock are super thin, and your foot will feel every stitch of your shoe in those locations. 3 weeks of heavy wear and I can see that the socks won't keep up with my lifestyle. Better suited to lighter duty. One pair shrunk rather heavily in the wash...not a big deal just did not expect it( yes,yes, perhaps don't wash in warm water :p)

Best socks for active people
07/18/13 | By Brian G .
I love these socks I originally wore them to the gym but I have recently started wearing them everyday and they are great I am a warehouse manager and I am on my feet all day on a concrete floor and with these socks I no longer go home with achy feet and legs.
Comfortable, but overheating
07/13/13 | By Luc I .
My feet are sweaty after a 10K run and it doesn't help with the blisters.
07/04/13 | By Judy J .
I stand on my feet all day and the balls and heels of my feet hurt. The padding on the Experia socks have made my feet much happier! Thanks! Judy
Lightweight for Summer
06/28/13 | By Mark K .
I'vw been buying Thorlos for years, They just don't wear out!
Old Basketball Player
06/23/13 | By James S .
I wear these for every basketball game. Much less pain in my feet!
Best socks for Golf
06/21/13 | By James I .
Thorlos are the best no question about it. They perform better, they last longer and are made in the USA. I can walk all 18 even 27 holes when needed thanks to Thorlos.
Great socks for exercising
06/20/13 | By Patrick B .
comfortable, and breathable.
Great Hot Weather Running Socks!
06/20/13 | By Misty G .
I love Thorlos and these socks are no exception! They are lightweight and fit like a glove. They wick away the sweat on hot days. They prevent friction blisters and provide cushion in the perfect places. They are a bit odd feeling at first. Stick with them...you will not regret it!
06/20/13 | By Ron M .
I love turlo socks and have worn them for 20 years. However these are the worst socks I have ever bought. I paid more money for them than normal Thurlos.
06/19/13 | By Adam K .
They do the job. Love them.
XCMU experia socks
06/18/13 | By Donna m M .
Absolutely love them. They are extremely comfortable in every way and love the colors.
06/09/13 | By Sterling P .
I purchased these socks to wear while golfing. They are very comfortable, and provide great cushioning.
Not what I expected
06/09/13 | By James E .
I wanted padded socks not nylon and mesh with advertising on the top.
good for working on your feet all shift long
06/08/13 | By Gavin S .
I was skeptical when I first got the socks and saw the thinner, sheer portions that coincide with the padded parts. But, so far at least, I'm pleased that the sheer parts have not frayed or gotten holes in them. And so far, I very pleased with their shock absorption and overall work at helping ease the burden of my work shifts which I perform while on my feet the whole time.
Great summer sock!
05/13/13 | By Christy U .
These are great socks to wear with my hikers or tennis shoes. They have great padding and yet stay cool in the summer heat.
Love these socks!
03/29/13 | By Richard M .
I love these socks! I have tried a lot of other brand socks and styles and these hold up time and time again. My feet feel comfortable and dry and never sore.
I love these new Thorlos!
02/03/13 | By Janet H .
My socks now match my new bright colored shoes and I'm 75 yrs but the best part is how comfortable the socks are!
Perfect socks for running
I love these socks -- they are perfect for running. On long runs in particular, I used to develop blisters behind the ball of my foot, but the placement of the padding now prevents that. Customer service was awesome, too -- I had some feedback and they were genuinely interested in what I had to say. Thanks!
Brilliant running socks
The most comfortable running socks ever. Great cushioning, snug fit, Dry feet cool feet and no discomfort at all.
Love these socks!
12/05/12 | By Tempy A .
Love how these hug my high aches and give padding for the target areas.
I like these
These socks are perfect for hot weather climates like where I live in Palm Springs. They keep my feet cool and dry and are very comfortable. My feet didn't seem to swell up as much at the end of the day either as compared to other socks. Just enough cushioning too.
Walk for a living? Great socks!
Socks are comfy.
10/27/12 | By Sue B .
Love the cushioning and the way they keep my feet at a comfortable temperature. They need to be offered in a larger size. Too snug and I only wear a size 10.
Another good product
I've been using Thorlos for years because they fit better and last longer than other socks I've tried. I do active sports almost every day and they hold up very well. These are good sock for hot weather if you want something light but still with padding where you need it. Just be mindful they are not as thick as the other Thorlos, especially on the top.
08/05/12 | By Nancy K .
This is a great sock. It is padded on the bottom in the heel area and toe area. There are two areas of a rather meshy fabric that let this sock be a bit breatheable, to not be too hot. I was rather put off by this sock at first, I did not think it would hold up. Now it is my favorite summer sock.
The socks support just the right places on my foot
Beat the heat!
07/01/12 | By Andrew S .
These are the best hot weather socks that you can find - your feet stay cool since the sock is sheer and they stay comfortable because of the Thorlo pads (mine are "Thorlo Pads 11")
Love these socks for running
What happened to all the funky colors you used to have?? Love these socks!
Great socks and worth the money.
You'll never go back to ordinary "footies" after you try these.
Thorlos are the best socks!
06/21/12 | By Diana B .
I've had several pairs of Thorlos of 6 years and they're just as comfortable and durable as when I first bought them. The best part is that they're made in the US.
greasest socks ever made
paed right but not to hot on the feet
This purchase hase been worth every penny and then some. The design is the perfect blend of lightweight and function. I wear these for hiking and rave about them on the trail whenever I can. First day out in them I hiked 15+ miles in the rugged NH White Mountain terrain without a single hot spot and my feet were not "mushy" looking at the end of the day. Thanks for offering the pink - they do get noticed and are good for a smile out there on the trail :)
Great socks for tennis
Very comfortable and wick the moisture great even though we have only seen the low 80's in temperature so far this spring.
